ExtraTime Radio: Former Scottish international Steve Nicol, plus new Chicago Fire boss Frank Yallop

Stay Or Go?

With the MLS Cup Playoffs on hold for another week, the guys shift their focus to international action on the latest show, including the US national team's matchup against Scotland on Friday. Former Scottish international and longtime New England Revolution head coach Steve Nicol calls in to preview the match, weigh in on the US team's biggest problems and discuss his old friend Clint Dempsey, and why he should avoid an offseason loan to Europe this winter.

The guys also welcome back a show favorite in Frank Yallop, the new head coach of the Chicago Fire. What does the MLS coaching great  have to say about all those rumors involving the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Canadian national team, and will he seek out a former Fire player as an assistant coach for his squad?

The guys also try and sort out ominous reports of Eddie Johnson's future in Seattle, an endorsement of Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid and the most interesting development in Nick's world since becoming a father.
